AC­CORD­ING to lov­able snow­man Olaf (voiced by Josh Gad), who is a per­mafrosted font of wis­dom about the nat­u­ral world, wa­ter has mem­ory.

Con­sid­er­ing that au­di­ences who flocked to the orig­i­nal Frozen are largely made of wa­ter, it’s safe to as­sume that their mem­o­ries of Chris Buck and Jen­nifer Lee’s Os­car-win­ning ad­ven­ture will ebb and flow through­out this visu­ally stun­ning se­quel to the high­est­gross­ing an­i­mated film of all time.

Wa­ter and the other clas­si­cal el­e­ments – air, earth and fire – play piv­otal roles in Frozen 2. The re­al­is­tic move­ment of aqua has al­ways been a chink in the ar­mour of com­puter an­i­ma­tors. Not so here.

Dis­ney’s pla­toons of dig­i­tal wizards re­peat­edly quench our thirst with jaw-drop­ping set pieces
